Long before Will Smith was cast as the wish-granter of Agrabah, he gained fame as "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" — and those two worlds came together Tuesday.

As Smith walked the purple carpet for the premiere of Disney's live-action "Aladdin," the Genie star was joined by a couple of his on-screen cousins from the beloved '90s sitcom.

Both Tatyana Ali, who played Ashley Banks, and Alfonso Ribeiro, who played nerdy cousin Carlton Banks, came out to support their old pal.

Ali greeted Smith with her family in tow — including husband Vaughn Rasberry, and their 2-year-old son, Edward.

And, as the actress revealed in April, she's pregnant with baby No. 2.

The throwback vibes continued when another familiar face arrived at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles.

Ribeiro beamed alongside his former co-star as the two posed for photographers; however, he didn't do his trademark moves on the carpet.

But that doesn't mean fans who attended the premiere Tuesday missed out on the chance to see the Carlton dance at all.

In fact, the famous routine made an appearance during a big song-and-dance number in the film.

"I'm going to give you a little secret," "Aladdin" choreographer Jamal Sims told a reporter from USA Today just before the film made its debut. "The Magic Carpet, not only does he get into the dance, he does The Carlton, actually."

A mini reunion and a "Fresh Prince"-"Aladdin" mashup moment on the big screen? It really is the best of both worlds.

"Aladdin" opens in theaters nationwide Friday.
